Leaseholder consultation (Section 20)
Housing Services has an obligation to you as a leaseholder to
maintain the building in which you have a property. It is of
fundamental importance that full and meaningful consultation with
you takes place before any major works to your block occur, or
long-term contracts with sub-contractors are entered into. This is
laid out in the Landlord and Tenant
Act 1985 and in the Commonhold
and Leasehold Reform Act 2002.
There are three main benefits to the consultation process:
- You are aware of and can have an input into the plans for work
to your building.
- You are aware that work is due to be done that will have a
financial impact on you and can plan accordingly.
- Housing Services is able to allocate to and recoup from you a
fair percentage of the costs incurred for carrying out the
Housing Services will consult with you about qualifying works
and qualifying long-term agreements with contractors and will
define the differences between repairs and improvements, making
clear which can be recharged for.
